Look it up if you'd like to know the facts, theres a website that tracks every Gopher play. In the last few weeks you'll see Skjei appears on there a handful of times. Mostly for being on the ice for goals against.

'Not that far off'

Ridiculous. You just joined everyone from the last 3 years saying Kreider was not that far off. 60 points this year !
That's simply untrue. He gets great press mostly because of his offensive prowess. But, he is up ice too much, is not physical and loses too many 50/50s along the boards. He's good but to infer that he is making that pair go defensively is ridiculous. When did it become a crime for a defenseman to be on the ice for a power play goal against? Clearly Lucia wants him on the ice when they are down a man since he keeps putting him out there on the first unit.
